About Patty

Call 719-207-2100 to reserve !!! In 1985 I came to Chaffee County to work ( Im a nurse ) I found a wonderful way of life. I raised my children here . I have been fortunate to learn business and share my properties with many wonderful visitors. As a New England native I have enjoyed the many outdoor activities in this area. I love to ski, hike , raft and have settled into the small town atmosphere. The best part of Colorado is the predominate sunshine. We have sunny days year round with robin blue skies. This lifts your sprit everyday ! Thanks for coming , Patty , John Michael and Natalie

Patty purchased this house in 2008

Why Patty chose Nathrop

I always wanted a property near Mt. Princeton with geothermal hot water. We were blessed with this house which was located on Chalk Creek and had a geothermal spring that produces 120 degree water at six gallons per minute. That's over 300 gallons an hour and over 4000 gallons a day of mineral enriched hot therapeutic soaking water.

What makes this house unique

Imagine your own private natural Hot Spring ! Creekside is nestled in the pines. Its very private. Chalk Creek rolls by. Other activities are endless, such as hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, rafting, rock hounding, horse back riding, mountaineering, and on and on and on.

At night the stars are spectacular !

Just what I was looking for.

  • 4 of 5

This is an awesome spot not done any justice by the existing pics.

The house was clean and more than what we needed.

No last minute runs to the grocery store for anything.

The garage let us keep all our kit outside with easy access.

The Colorado Trail being less than a few miles up the road was spot on.

The only thing missing was getting a fire going outside.

Fire danger was high so we probably would not have done that anyway, but a dedicated and manicured spot for that activity is necessary.

We even got some fly fishing in simply walking down and wading through the creek from the house. The water was not as deep as you would want, but peaceful nonetheless.

Great, great place to stay.

Beautiful secluded property with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here 4 times now and couldn’t recommend it more. It is always clean, has a great kitchen, beautiful views in the day and even better views of the Milky Way ay night. If you are looking for a place to just get away, this is it. I always love the look on super connected people’s faces when they realize they have to go to the top of the driveway to get a cell signal. You don’t have to worry about people being on their phones or responding to text messages or emails while staying here. The creek by the hot springs is so beautiful and I highly recommend going and taking in the sound of the water.

Patty is super accommodating and kind and always gives you advice on how to best experience the hot spring.

The second floor is a little creepy sometimes but maybe that is just our experience. It always makes for an interesting experience even if it feels a little haunted. If you like a quiet getaway with friends and family go here!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Creekside Hot Springs Cabin over 2017-2018 New Years for about a week. My family and I were interested in skiing and the idea of having a hot spring to come home to after a long day of skiing was enticing.

The cabin was wonderful. Nicely appointed, beautifully crafted. The appliances are not the newest, but they are of very high quality. We like to cook our own meals when staying at a VRBO, and the kitchen here has more than you will ever need. We made a fire each night in the fireplace.

There is no internet, TV, and cell service is weak/non-existent, but for us, that was perfect. There is a wide array of movies and games available. The hot spring is wonderful, almost too hot, and felt so good after a long day of skiing. Deer came through the property almost daily, and would come right up to you without fear. There is an old treehouse on the property, which the kids explored.

The lack of cell service was a minor challenge, but a short walk (50') up the hill got me a Verizon signal. Apparently ATT will work on the deck as well. It was great to get the kids off their devices, and we actually welcomed the isolation.

When I read the visitor's log book, there were at least three wedding proposals and plenty of girls weekends, etc. I would recommend this for couples and small groups looking for a relaxing getaway with a hot spring, wine, and relaxation. It made for a wonderful ski home base for my family as well.
